It Gets Better brings the experience and message of the online It Gets Better Project to communities and audiences by blending music, theatre, and multimedia into a work for the stage, produced by the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus in collaboration with the It Gets Better Project and Speak Theater Arts.

Since its inception in 2011, It Gets Better has been an ever-evolving work. Now, “cycle three” is responding to both troubling and hopeful changes in the American conversation about LGBTQ++ people and issues.

A week of educational workshops in the community will culminate in a moving musical theater performance – equal parts wit, whimsy, empowerment, and inspiration – featuring real stories from gay, lesbian, transgender, and straight allies from around the country.

Presented in partnership with THE LOFT LGBT Community Center.

The It Gets Better World Cafe

World Café conversations allow diverse groups an opportunity to share ideas and experiences toward a better understanding of an issue within a community.  As the conversation progresses, participants move toward visioning about future possibilities. Members of the It Gets Better touring company will facilitate, and stakeholders and allies in the LGBTQ community are invited to attend this roundtable discussion. Please come ready to have an active conversation on the climate for the LGBTQ community in our region.
